Sorry, every cnut and their dog gets their system 'STANAG'ed, which makes a mockery of the whole show.
So a brand new system could be a new STANAG.
Regardless, if one chose the Weaver it'd work.
Same as if one went for Picatinny or the 'ubiquitous' STANAG rail of the SUSAT.*
*Which dozens of countries have adopted.

It's not a practical day to day feature on a service rifle.
STANAG rails are different from Picatinny rails by the way and the NATO/STANAG standard rail while possibly interchangable with US kit offers better repeatabilty due to the profile of the rail.

STANAG 4694 is the NATO Accessory Rail, 'backwards compatible' as the buzzword dudes put it with the STANAG 2324.
Which is the fancy STANAG name for the Picatinny.
Weaver kit will fit Picatinny but not necessarily the reverse.
The actual rail itself is purely detail.
A straddle mount on rails or lugs would give even more stability, but is this a battle rifle or a sharpshooter's toy ?
